This quick and easy Breakfast Couscous recipe is warm, hearty and filling. It’s the perfect easy breakfast for busy mornings.
See, mornings are not my friend. Never have been. Growing up, my sister was one of those chipper morning people. Man, that bugged me. Happy and chattering away while all I wanted was some quiet time to wake up. Slowly. Preferably with a nice big cup of steaming hot coffee.
So, you won’t see me bouncing out of bed, with little blue birds on my window sill waiting to bring me my bathrobe, so I can hurry to the kitchen and whip up a scrumptious breakfast for my family. Nice thought. But just not happening.
Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE breakfast! Especially when someone else makes it for me.
Since I’m not a morning person, I’m always on the lookout for breakfast dishes that can either be assembled ahead of time or require little prep time.
This recipe is very similar to oatmeal. It has a similar texture and similar flavor. Plus, it’s so versatile. You can add any mix-ins that you perfer (or none at all if that’s your thing). And, if you have any leftover, it’s just as good the next day, reheated in the microwave.
This recipe is incredibly easy to make – and this is coming from a non-morning person. I say it’s definitely a keeper! I highly recommend you make this. Tomorrow. Trust me.
